Paris Island in late July and through Labor Day on the griddle! Was that 'luck' or planning as far as the timing?

No luck there Micah - Shit, I was 19 and had just come off Spring Tour. I just thought what the hell and went down and signed up in May of '89. The recruiter said "Hows July 17th sound to you?" I said sure and that was that. About six weeks to try to get into shape - one last show and I was outta there.

The humidity in the summer there(PI) rivals anything, anywhere I have ever been. The rot of the swamp coupled with that humidity made it a physical experience unlike any other I can explain. Instant sweat, stinkin ass island, and some dude just screamin in your face.

Ahh the good old days....

Spring tour. Summer Paris Island B.C.

That's a mighty pendulum swing. Thank God you were 19. I bet that recruiter had a chuckle.
